How much do those Lee County School bus drivers make?
Driver: "Wow - there he is he is right behind us".
We have heard -- seen and learned a lot about these five Lee County school bus drivers taking a joy ride on your dime. But several questions still remain. The district told me they were all off the clock. But listen to what the drivers are saying about it -- after I busted them working out and running errands.
Driver: "I got his picture baby."
Driver: "He asked are you guys working out. I said no".
Driver: "He said are you guys working off the clock. I said no the drivers on the clock - we are off the clock - we are off the clock. He is quick to find out all you employees are getting paid now".
Faye Jennings is the driver. I started looking at her paychecks -- after all its your tax money. This is a copy of the hours she worked -- her hourly rate and how much overtime she made from Jan till the end of November this year. Here is how it breaks down -- she makes 16.79 an hour and so far has made a little more than $ 20,500 ($20,534.19) plus nearly ten thousand ($9,713.02) in overtime for this year. Which is more than 30 grand -- but remember this is for only nine months of work.
Driver:"slow down baby…"
Driver: "Huh? "
Driver: "I said slow down its 35 mph right here."
Driver: "You don't want to him to get nothing he can put on the news".
Kevin Stern -- makes 14.17 an hour. He's earned nearly 22-thousand dollars ($21,719.08) plus nearly 65-hundred (6,493.43) in overtime for a total of more than 28-thousand dollars ($28,212.51)
Driver: "Mr. Dailey will stand out there and protect us and say I want to press charges against this man".
